GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap at CK. Brilliant gold pour with a small layer of foam. Crystal clear. Dank, oily, resinous hop nose. No specific hop varietal comes to mind. Taste is juicy, oily, small sugar and sweet jackfruit plus cantaloupe and pineapple. Rich, sticky. No cheese, no strawberry, no red fruitiness, no stale character. Thank the lord.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 28, 2012
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours bright yellow with a white head. The aroma is very peppery with lots of citrus and grass. The flavor is dry with some bitter citrus peel, grass and some light biscuity honey malt. Light bodied and easy to drink. Nice.

Served on draft at Capital Ale House Downtown. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal hops with a bit of citrus and toasted malts. The taste is bitter citrus, resin hops, caramel malts and some bread. Full bodied with a lingering bitterness. Solid DIPA.
